Event Details

Folsom Neighborhood Tree Planting

Join us to plant trees throughout the Folsom Garden Apartments complex! These trees will provide much needed shade, clean air and clean water for the neighborhood – your contribution to the community through planting these trees will last for generations to come.

We provide all the necessary tools and supplies to care for trees. Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split up into groups and begin planting trees throughout the apartment complex.

Register now! The week before this event, we will send a logistics and directions email with detailed information about how to get to the site. You will receive this email ONLY if you are signed-up for this planting.

Who should attend?

Anyone, but those who live or work nearby are especially encouraged to attend! This event is open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us and on-site training will be provided. Families with children are welcome.
